Robert Run

Robert has been putting synonyms on his oatmeal since he was a little kid.

This is Robert's first attempt at being seriously published. While he has folders full of material, both physical and digital, thinking of himself as someone other people might be interested in reading is new for him.

He has piles of song lyrics from his time as a young man in rock bands, wads of short stories, a pretty good number of vignettes, a couple of fairy tales and short screenplays. Not many people have seen any of it.

The youngest of six kids by five years, there was no shortage of reading material for Rob in the home. He was so impressed with all these older siblings engrossed in their reading. He thought at a very young age that he wanted to be someone who writes a book that gets left lying on a table in people's homes.

Quote from Rob: "When I was a kid, I thought everyone was a writer, otherwise what are all those letters and words for?"

Update #9 - This part is over Jan. 30, 2016

OK nice people. This part is over. my campaign is up in two days. Here is where we are. 

I purchased a software subscription called Grammarly which does a lot of work. I am a little bit better than halfway through the book with Grammarly. It is a far more enjoyable process to final edit than I expected. 

When I am done with this I am sending it to a human Editor for the final set of eyeballs. She is a graduate of Northwestern University and I am very happy about that. They have very good Literature programs and a few friends are graduates of some of those programs. It gives me some confidence to have someone of that skill level involved.

I've also purchased the formatting template that I will be using. It is really cool and it'll make my writing look like it's in a real book. LOLLZ (Laugh out loud like Zajac). 

I am still researching print on demand systems. I'll get that figured out by the end of Feb or early March. By all means suggestions are welcome.

I expect to meet my deadline for the launch of March 21. Vernal Equinox. Right now I am ahead by a couple of weeks... so I am trying to stay ahead and get more ahead in case of unforeseen issues. 

On the 21st you'll have the ebook sent to you before anyone, then as long as it takes for the print books to reach you via the postal chaos, you'll have those. I will choose the safest method to send those. 

Future updates will come directly from my email address and not through the Publishizer system. 

Gratefully, 

Rob
